Sunderland keeper Max Stryjek has extended his loan spell with Eastleigh after impressing for the National League side.
He’ll remain on the south coast until December 22nd, helping them hunt a play off spot in the fifth tier.
The 22-year old has kept three clean sheets in five Spitfires appearances, and picked up September’s player-of-the-month award along the way.
The latest extension means he is available for selection for Saturday’s trip to Halifax Town. He missed the weekend’s FA Cup exit against Hampton & Richmond Borough as Jack Ross did not want him cup tied in the FA Cup.
The Warsaw-born stopper move to the Black Cats as a 15-year old and has enjoyed loan spells with Boston United and Accrington before joining Eastleigh.
Stryjek is a promising keeper whom Sunderland clearly rate, otherwise they wouldn’t have been too bothered about him being cup tied.
If he is to play in the cup, they’ll need to progress to the third round of the competition as rounds one and two take place before he’s due back in Sunderland.
